For this 12×12 layout, Mari started with her journaling; she created the journaling in Microsoft Word and then printed that in a vertical format on white cardstock. She used a 12×12 piece of textured white cardstock for the layout base. Using some of the Cheeky Studio floral paper as a mat, Mari created a floral themed project to complement the photo documenting her daughter’s bachelorette party.
The floral cut file from the shop was used to create the large embellishment pieces. Mari added Color Shine in Ocean, Butter, Teal, Pink, and Citron to complement the colors of the patterned paper. The sweet floral and foliage die cuts used with the cut file are from Cheeky Studio as well. The flair and cut aparts were used to finish off the centers of the floral pieces.
Mari added some stitching and gold splatters to complete the layout.

I was excited to make this layout using several different products from Cheeky Studio. I mixed and matched and pulled from my stash and I just LOVE how bright and fun this layout is! I started with this cream cardstock for the foundation and added the Norwegian Wood papers and Autumn Beauty papers to start my foundation. I just adore the soft colors in the flower clusters on the Autumn Beauty paper.
I also took a piece of the Norwegian Wood papers and fussy cut out a bunch of the lovely flowers. What I didn’t fussy cut, I pulled from the ephemera to build my clusters around the photo.
As pictured above you can also see where I used the Cut Apart Labels from the Sweet Succulents collection and the Wild Flowers collection to add an additional element to my clusters. All of these colors went together so well that the layout came together quickly. I did pull in some Thickers from AC for my *cough* *cough* “age”….lol!
I needed one more cluster to balance the page and loved this large label in the NW ephemera. It went in the bottom right hand corner with a touch of thread and a few more flowers. Go light on the thread or it might get “messy”.
Below is the final layout! I do have the process video on my personal Youtube Channel here: https://youtu.be/32kyVSq39C0 and on the Cheeky Studio Youtube Channel here: https://youtu.be/et5o2rLuh84
